UNITED STATES DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION

La Unión
Cartel cell with links to Cártel de Sinaloa and Cártel del Noreste
Los Santos, San Andreas - June 15th, 2019

Mexican Transnational Criminal Organizations remain the greatest criminal drug threat to the United States; no other group is currently positioned to challenge them. These TCOs maintain territorial influence over large regions in Mexico used for the cultivation, production, importation, and transportation of illicit drugs.
The Mexican cartels (TCOs) uphold their influence in certain territories sometimes known as "plaza's" in the U.S — primarily along the southern border states such as San Andreas, more specifically Los Santos city — according to the Drug Enforcement Administration's 2019 National Drug Threat Assessment, the clandestine cartel operations continue to expand to nurture their drug market.
The report details alterations in cartel presence in the U.S — most notably the increase of 'Cártel de Sinaloa' presence, which is still considered one of the strongest cartels in Mexico.
Mexican cartel members operating in the US, strive to maintain low visibility and generally refrain from inter-cartel violence so as to avoid law enforcement detection and scrutiny.


Mexican TCOs show clear signs of growth and expansion by their control of lucrative smuggling corridors, primarily across the border regions. Mexican TCOs also export significant quantities of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, marihuana, and possibly fentanyl into the United States annually. Once these illicit drugs are smuggled into the U.S., they are delivered to the highest user markets in the United States through transportation routes and distribution cells that are directly managed or influenced by the Mexican TCOs.

  • Over the course of several years, Mexican TCOs have expanded their influence to different regions of the United States. These TCOs are moving to expand their share of the market, especially in opioids and methamphetamine.
  • The most significant illicit drug threat posed to the greater Los Santos area is by Mexican TCOs, which dominate the wholesale supply of methamphetamine, cocaine, Mexican or locally grown marihuana, and heroin in the area. At this time there does not appear to be any viable competitors.
  • Sinaloa Cartel leaders operating under the wing of Joaquin Guzman Loera, Ismael Zambada Garcia, and Rafael Caro Quintero maintain cell heads in Los Santos, San Andreas to oversee the distribution of illegal drugs in the region. These cell leaders also coordinate the transportation of illicit narcotics from Los Santos to various U.S. cities where cartel operatives are responsible for receiving and distributing the shipments through a network of middle men usually linked to prison gangs.

Los Mirlos—Los Coroneles, "La Unión"
La Unión is a T.C.O. (Transnational Criminal Organization) based in the state of San Andreas with its command and control structure suspected to radicate in different border areas of Mexico and U.S.A.
US-based Mexican (transnational criminal organization) members generally coordinate the transportation and distribution of bulk wholesale quantities of illicit drugs to U.S. markets, while retail-level distribution is mainly handled by smaller local groups and street gangs not directly affiliated with the Mexican TCOs.

The name is a reference to an ambitious business plan that aims to combine the supply lines of Cártel de Sinaloa, Cártel del Noreste and others through the merging of different crime cells within the state.
Joaquin Parejo made his mark during his tenure as an enforcer in the Zetas Vieja Escuela cell operating at Las Colinas district from Los Santos as their primary plaza from which they would control different drug markets — shortly after the organization's exit from Los Zetas, Oscar "El Sapo" Villanueva, former federal de caminos officer made his entry into the organization with an order to wrest it back under Zeta control.

Parejo and Villanueva's original partnership resulted in the rise of Los Mirlos, a crew within the Las Colinas organization acting as their intelligence branch — the appearance of the crew sparked internal tensions, leading to the group's independence amidst the turmoil.
Parejo and Villanueva's exit from the organization marks the end of Los Mirlos and the end of the Las Colinas organization followed shortly after.

Pedro Coronel is the founding figure of Los Coroneles, a Sinaloa Cartel cell with reports of operations in Arizona, Nevada, Baja California and now in San Andreas. The leadership of the group is suspected to involve high ranking members of the Border Brothers prison gang who became official members of the cartel.
The Coroneles operate from within and out of the prison system and on both sides of the U.S. - Mexican border with presence in cities like Tijuana Mexico.
It is believed that they report directly to Grupo Panteras from La Comisión del Pacífico Norte, the latter being a conglomerate of traffickers in the Mexican states of Sinaloa, Sonora, Durango, Baja California, Chihuahua and now also suspected to have influence in Nuevo León, Tamaulipas and Zacatecas through La Unión.
Other reports indicate that La Comisión del Pacífico Norte was also in business with the Casas family from Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua circa 2018.

Out of character
La Unión is a predominantly Mexican TCO (Transnational Criminal Organization) involved in the trafficking of drugs and weaponry through the U.S.—Mexico border regions. The organization claims ties to the Tamaulipas and Nuevo León based "Cártel del Noreste" and also to the Sinaloa based organization "La Comisión del Pacífico Norte" and we utilise the war on drugs turbulent history in our efforts to portray a realistic cartel cell.

The Little Mexico district is used as the faction's 'plaza', and is free for anyone to participate in both legal and illegal roleplay if your character is from there. Any RP that leads to an entry to the faction begins there as a part of the community.
We strive to create a good atmosphere in Little Mexico, not necessarily leaning towards criminal activity.

Questions can be directed to EGN via PM.

Upon joining the faction, you are to send character kill permission to EGN
Entitled FIRSTNAME LASTNAME - CHARACTER KILL AGREEMENT with the message in the following format.

Code: Select all

I, Firstname_Lastname (Forum Name) accept that the leadership of La Unión can character kill me at any given time for in character events.

How to approach the faction?

Roleplaying as a cartel member is nothing like any other faction that you may have roleplayed in or be used to. The closest roleplay style would be as of a 'mafia' type of faction. We would also like to remind users, that their mentality cannot be of being a drug lord since day one. As everyone knows, any sort of faction demands their members to start slowly and from the bottom. This means that you can't expect to be treated like a full member right away. Gangs for example, usually require their outsiders to roleplay as "peewees" or characters from a certain age. Mafias, on the other hand, regularly ask their members to roleplay as associates willing to get into the crew by being loyal and good earners. These procedures also let the faction leaders analyze the roleplay skills of each member. Therefore, we are trying to come up with ways which could let the people get in touch with us by using a network of legal fronts. We suggest that if you are interested in roleplaying with the faction, create a character that fits the description of the type of person that we would get to employ.

What type of character should you roleplay?
These are just a few examples of how can you approach and join the cartel, there's also plenty more but we prefer these:

Background:
Your background should be realistic, being it that your character is from a small town or city within the following Mexican states: Sinaloa, Durango, Baja California, Chihuahua, Jalisco, Michoacán, Guerrero, Sonora or Guanajuato. You can also be as creative as you want as long as it's accurate.

Illegal immigrant:
This type of characters are more likely to roleplay as a poor person who is trying to reach the "American dream". In this case you should portray the tension of not having legal documents.

Mexican:
Cartel members from Mexico usually spring from ex-military trained individuals. This means that your character would be used to discipline and serving under a military rank structure. Cartels in Mexico and in the United States of America have very different ways of operating. In Mexico it's usually about growing and developing product and then smuggling it. These days though, cartel groups tend to develop drugs like meth and marihuana domestically at the cities where they distribute to save time and to take less risks.

The cartel groups in the United States then receive the smuggled goods, stash them and connect the sales. Finally they smuggle the cash back into Mexico in order to launder the money, but they may also do it in the U.S.

Paisa inmate:
If you want to approach the faction via the prison system and the Border Brothers prison gang, you can roleplay to be a former cartel member or former cartel mule who got arrested and transfered into SACF where you can get recruited by the group.

Mexican - American:
This is also possible, if you are already roleplaying a Mexican-American citizen who is IC'ly in touch with our legal or illegal side of the faction and become an associate of it.

Other nationalities:
One thing that is parallel to the Italian mafia is blood; only Mexican blooded individuals are more likely to get into the organization as full members. Although it's entirely up to you if you wish to roleplay differently.

Keep in mind that other nationalities are often looked down upon by certain people and will result in a certain distrust of your characters' motives and actions. The other origins that we would recommend are; El Salvador, Guatemala, Peru, Honduras and Nicaragua. This however doesn't mean that you can't roleplay any other nationality.

Dress code:
To put it bluntly, cartels do not have a specific way of dressing as their members have a whole range of different positions, backgrounds and lifestyle. One thing that they may have in common is that they (in the majority) lack of cartel affiliation tattoos. Though the ones that do have non-affiliating tattoos may hold their own personal meaning and usually are to show a sense of pride, like anybody else.

Our faction portrays a modern-day distribution cell under the Sinaloa Cartel, therefore we are more likely to dress with an urban sense. Although the cartel members in Mexico tend to dress a little bit more "countryside", since they are usually in mountains, pueblos or rough areas.

The key thing is to dress your characters in a way that best fits their background, lifestyle and the way that they develop within the organization.

GUIDE TO MEXICAN SLANG:
- El jale, La tranza = Job, work. "Jale" can also be used for legal intentions. What's your "jale"? - Where do you work? or What do you do? Tranza on the other hand is more oriented to an illegal activity.

- Cuerno de chivo = AK-47.

- A huevo = Mexican expression for "hell yeah".

- Órale = Can be used as the "a huevo" concept but "orale" can have many meanings such as "let's do it", "move", "watch out" and a simple "ok" or "yeah". It is also a word heavily used by Mexicans up to this date and probably will always be. Words like "sobres" and "sale" have a similar meaning.

- ¿Qué rollo? (commonly used on the northern regions of Mexico), żQué onda? (used everywhere in Mexico), żQué tranza? (commonly used in the central areas such as Mexico City), żQué show? (commonly used everywhere as well) = What's up?

- Chiva, chivato, rata = Snitch, informant. "Sapo" can also be used although is more of a Colombian slang word.

- Chido, chingón, ¡Con madre! = Cool, dope. These three words are used all over the country and are very characteristic of the Mexican people.

- Chapulín = Organization hopper. The word literally means cricket.

- Manguera = A person that "leaks" too much info as the literal meaning is "Hose". Usually referred for people who "brag" a lot.

- Placoso = Something that denotes or is meant to have the "mańoso" look. It can be anything from a car modification to a gold plated gun.

- Mańoso = Slang for mafioso, mafia looking.

- Halcón = Lookout. The literal meaning is hawk.

- Sicario = Hitman.

- Mula = Smuggler.

- Narco, malandro, malandrín, mańoso, traqueto = Slang used most commonly for narco traffickers. "Malandrín" though can also be employed for common criminals.

- Estaca = Low level enforcer.

- Contra = Enemy, rival.

- Chota, tira, puercos (pigs) = Police. Mexicans don't commonly use the term "jura". That's more of a Mexican American thing.

- Mota, café, hierba, yeska = Weed.

- Períco, caspita, polvo, lavada = Cocaine.

- Jefe = Boss or father.

- Jefa = Female boss or mother.

- Carnal = Brother, homie, friend. "Carnala" = sister.

- Compa, camarada, pariente, cuńado = Partner, dude, friend.

- Wey = Dude. Pronounced like "goo-hey" refers to a "buey" which is spanish for "bull". Probably very old Mexican slang and one of the most representatives.

- Morras, viejas, plebitas = Women. "Morra" or "morrita" can also be employed for a female kid ("nińa") or daughter ("hija").

- Morro = Kid. "Morrito" can be used for a male kid ("nińo") or son ("hijo").

- Mija, mijo = Mi (my) hijo, Mi (my) hija. Similar to english slang of "son", the term "mijo" can be used by one older person to a younger one. It can also pretend to denote superior experience from one to another. When it comes to genders, if a male says it to a female or the other way around it is usually in a nice and caring way.

- 'Telocíco = Abbreviation of "Cállate el hocico". This expression can be heard mostly on the northern areas of the country and it means "S.T.F.U.". Mexican Americans may also be aware of it.

- 'Nambre = This expression is a way of saying "no way".

- Agüitado = Sad, angry.

- Ondeado = Angry, crazy, tripping.

- Sin Broncas = All good. "Broncas" meaning trouble and "Sin" without.

- Trago, pisto = Drink, drinks. "Pistear"; to drink alcohol.

- Botella = Bottle.

- Troca = SUV, pick-up truck.

- Cuete, fusca, fierro, tubo = Gun. Not to confuse "fierro" with "filero" the last one meaning blade or shank.

- Plaza = Turf.

- Paro = Favor.
